Special Tribute Programs

Alumni Hall Honor Chair Program

The Honor Chair Program is a tangible way to remember and honor special individuals at the time of a graduation, anniversary or other special occasion - or just in recognition of that individual. A $1,000 gift to the Annual Fund allows the permanent placement of an engraved brass plate to a seat in Alumni Hall at the Naval Academy. Additional details may be found in the Honor Chair brochure (PDF). Please note that matching gifts do not count towards the $1,000 gift for an Honor Chair.

Stadium Take-A-Seat Program
